Cruz to tea party advocates: Don’t get ‘burned’ by fake conservatives


Myrtle Beach, South Carolina( CNN) Ted Cruz implored a Tea Party audience here on Saturday to analyze closely the record of candidates like Donald Trump and Marco Rubio, warning a crowd not to get “burned” by fake brethren in limbs even as he declined to utter his rivals’ names.

The Texas senator typically asks audiences to distinguish between “campaign conservatives” and “consistent conservatives, ” but Cruz’s remarks Saturday is mainly a dare to those gathered here to look finely at opponents’ histories on seven key combats. In a retooled stump speech flush with Trump overtones and delivered right before Trump took the stage himself, Cruz offered a checklist of battles that he had led that his foes — like Trump — hadn’t.
